Health & Wellness: Genetics and Nutrition Part 3 of 4

As previously discussed, our genes play a significant role in energy expenditure, appetite, and fat metabolism. Our genetics determine our susceptibility to obesity when exposed to an unfavorable environment. Additionally, we are able to see how individuals will react to specific diets and exercises. We are able to use genetic testing to see a genetic profile and create a cutting-edge, scientifically-backed, and effective weight loss plans for each patient.

Podcast: Health & Immunity Series 1 of 4

PODCAST: Dr. Alex Jimenez, chiropractor in El Paso, TX, and Dr. Marius Ruja, chiropractor in El Paso, TX, discuss how our immune system can help maintain our health during these COVID-19 times. Inflammation is the immune system's natural response to protect the human body from injury, infection, and illness. However, chronic inflammation can ultimately cause more harm than good, according to healthcare professionals. While further evidence is still required, people that have underlying health issues, such as diabetes and asthma, can have a higher risk of getting COVID-19. Dr. Alex Jimenez and Dr. Marius Ruja discuss how following a proper diet and participating in exercise can help decrease inflammation and regulate our immune system in order for the human body to much more effectively protect us against the effects of COVID-19.  - Podcast Insight

Health & Wellness: Diet and Nutrition Part 2 of 4

Genetic testing has come a long way and we are now able to use it in our clinic. We have the resources to send a DNA sample from our patients to be assessed in order for us to create a truly personalized wellness plan. By taking these results, we are able to recommend a diet that fits the individual best for optimal health outcomes. Additionally, we are able to provide our patients with an insight into how their body absorbs and breaks down carbohydrates, saturated fat, and the optimal amount of exercise needed to lose weight.
